Whats the difference in a hot and cold laminator?

“Heat assist” films have pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) and liners and are applied with hot-roll laminators at 185 to 195 degrees. “Cold” laminating films have a more aggressive adhesive that can be applied with pressure, instead of heat.

Why would you laminate cold?

Technically, when using a cold pouch, you don’t need a machine. You can seal a document with your hand, a ruler or credit card. At the same time, a laminating machine distributes more pressure, more evenly. That’s where the cold setting on your machine comes in handy.

Can I laminate small pieces of paper?

Sometimes you may just have small piece of paper to laminate and you decide to cut out a nice rectangular section of the laminating pouch (because you don’t want to waste the whole thing). This is okay as long as you cut from the sealed end.

Is it better to cut paper before laminating?

There are many cases where it is important to completely seal the item away under laminate. When you need this, it is wise to cut the materials first and then laminate. That way you can get a secure seal around the whole edge rather than cutting afterwards and leaving the potential that the laminate could lift.
